This chapter discusses three instances of realignments between politics and commerce in general and politics and the literary marketplace in particular. The first is a new discursiveness in English politics, and the second is the growth of what historians have called civil humanism. Finally, the third instance is the reciprocal stimulation of the national debt and the growth of speculative finance capital. These are interwoven to reveal both their individual and cumulative pressure on the crossings described in the chapter.

Keywords:   realignments, politics, commerce, literary marketplace, English politics, civil humanism, reciprocal stimulation
